I had neglected to mention 2 things:

1. Test.jar only has 1 class in it - Test.class, and

2. My system claspath has "." in it which is why TestCP.class is picked up

As it turns out, #2 was the key missing point!

When I did both of the following:

 * Reorganized Test.jar to contain:


 * Ran the test from a different directory to prevent TestCP.class from being loaded from

then everything works fine.

My guess is that the <classpath> is used ONLY if taskdef is unable to locate the class
from the system class path.  In other words, since TestCP was unresolved from the system class
path, Test.jar was loaded.
